Mother and actress Naya Rivera has been laid to rest nearly two weeks after her body was recovered from Lake Piru in California.

According to the death certificate obtained by People.comthe Glee star was buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles last week, the same cemetery where Fast and the Furious actor Paul Walker is buried.

The document also confirms that her cause of death was “drowning”, it happened within a matter of minutes and there were no other significant contributing factors.

Naya had been reported missing earlier this month after taking her 4-year-old son Josey on a boat. He was found asleep in the rented pontoon all alone.

According to the Ventura County Sherriff’s department, Josey told investigators that he and his mum had been swimming in the lake and he got back into the boat, but she did not.

Her younger sister Nickayla recently posted a tribute to Naya on her socials saying “I’ll love you for eternity and miss you every second of my life.”

Naya’s ex-husband Ryan Dorsey also posted a heart-breaking message saying “This is so unfair…there’s not enough words to express the hole left in everyone’s hearts. I can’t believe this is life now.”
